Now a look of the opinion of famous businessmen:

Positive comments:

* Bill Gates,founder of Microsoft:

        "Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be. Bitcoin is better than currency in that you do not have to be physically in the same place and of course,for large transactions currency can get pretty inconveninent."

* Eric Schmidt,executive chairman of Alphabet inc.:

        "Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement. The ability to create something which is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value."

* James Gorman,ceo of Morgan Stanley:

          "Bitcoin is certainly something more than just a fad....The concept of anonymous currency is a very interesting concept--interesting for the privacy protection it gives people. Interesting because what it says to the central-banking system about controlling that."

* Steve Wozniak,co-founder of Apple inc.:

        "Bitcoin is better than gold and US dollar. Bitcoin is more stable and less prone to arbitrary supply changes."

Negative comments:

* Warren Buffet,founder of Berkshire Hathaway: 

        "people get excited from big price movements, and wall street accommodates... You can't value bitcoin because it's not a value producing asset. It's a 'real bubble'."

* Jack Bogle,founder of vanguard group:   

          "You know bonds have an interest coupon,stocks have earnings and dividend but bitcoin has nothing. There is nothing to support bircoin except the hope that you sell it to someone for more than you paid for it. Bitcoin may well go to 20000 dollars but that wouldn't prove i'm wrong. When it gets back to 100 dollar,we'll talk."

* Jamie Dimon,ceo of JP Morgan

          " it's a fraud. If a JP morgan trader began trading in bitcoin then i'd fire them in a second. For two reasons: it's against our rules and they are stupid. And both are dangerous."
